What This Means
With Jim Nill entering the final year of his current contract, the Stars decided to take care of some internal business before getting back to work. Nill has been the Dallas Stars general manager since 2013. Since his first season with the Stars, he has led the club to a 356-259-84 record in nine regular seasons, 5 playoff appearances, and an appearance in the 2020 Stanley Cup final. The Stars ultimately lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in 6 games in that Final appearance.
Now that Nill is extended through another year with the Stars, there is still plenty of work to do as we inch closer to training camp. The most notable signing Stars fans are looking towards is star forward Jason Robertson who still remains unsigned heading into this coming season. His contract is set to end with the Stars after this coming season.
Dallas Stars Owner, Tom Gaglardi, has been impressed with Nill’s work citing his statement to the media:
“Jim has done tremendous work in his nine years since joining the Stars, having developed a culture of excellence within our organization that has translated to success on the ice,” said Gaglardi. “He’s re-shaped our club to put us in a position to compete with the League’s best each and every season. Jim’s diligence and commitment to the Stars has reverberated throughout our entire organization and we’re excited for him to continue his work building a championship-calibre team.”
Likewise, in a statement following the announcement, Jim Nill praised the Stars front office in a statement to the media:
“I want to thank Tom Gaglardi for his commitment to building a winning organization and for allowing Bekki and myself to call Texas home over the past ten years. While we have made some big strides toward our ultimate goal, I am eager to continue my work in developing a winning culture that ultimately brings this team and this city a championship.”
Dallas Stars training camp is set to start on Sept 22nd, 2022.
